I continue to appreciate this place. Steaks are good. Sides are good and the location is just fun. Neat old building which is fun to tour and the cathedral next door is wondrous.

This restaurant is located in a historic building dating back to 1819 - you are surrounded by gorgeous brick & bourbon barrels . Renowned for their delicious steaks, they also have excellent sides & salads. Rickhouse is a wonderful restaurant!

Ate in the bar where full menu is available. Enjoyed the shrimp and grits (again) and the salmon. Young, competent bartender fixed nice cocktails. The salads and salmon were quite good.

We waited 90 minutes for our food which was mediocre at best. The vegetables (Brussel sprouts and green beans) were clearly frozen vegetables...not sure how a restaurant like this has survived this long. We are just visitors, but if i were a local, this would...More
